Ruth is a focused professional with years of experience and a wealth of knowledge. She includes informative handouts and exercises with her treatments. My back pain was completely gone in four treatments and now I see her for relaxation and tune ups! - Ron R.

I found Ruth in 2007. She is good at what she does, caring and well-priced. She uses cream rather than oil. The environment is peaceful and there is plenty of parking. I always leave feeling better able to deal with life. - Julie H.

I am an 18 year old competitive national tennis player. I am stiff and sore after a demanding day of tournaments and Ruth intuitively finds all my sore spots. I leave feeling relaxed and I move with ease, ready for more tennis! - Dominique C.

I was referred to Ruth by another health professional after two surgeries on my hand and shoulder. I could barely move my right shoulder and I could not use my right hand at all. I was feeling hopeless, thinking I might be disabled for life. She not only did massage, I was given a series of helpful exercises that I followed and did every day. After 6 months I am 80% improved and I know with continued care I will be using my hand and arm the way I used to. I feel great, not only physically but emotionally. I am grateful for her work. - Rusty D.

Ruth is a responsible and reliable massage therapist. Her work has helped me when I needed soothing relaxation and when I had complex injuries. She gives valuable advice on health, exercise and insurance companies. Her true vocation is healing. - Gwen D.

It is great to find a massage therapist who loves their work, continues to learn and try new things, takes good notes and remembers the details of my care, including my favorite music. On top of that, her rates are reasonable. Thanks Ruth. - Laura M.
